Although, some have attributed the success of a blog to the particular host with which the blogger hosts his blog and the kind of subscription he uses. To this claim, I vehemently disagree. Since how successful a blog can become is determined by the quality of the traffic such blog is able to pull at a particular time, it will be ridiculous to believe that the blog host has any hand in pooling the traffic.

Remember, I will not be speaking for or against any blog host. This note is just based on my experience.

Giving an insightful look, one will realise that the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) techniques, both on-page and off-page SEO techniques employed and implemented for a particular blog is what actually determines how successful the blog will be and for how long it will take to achieve it.

While one blog host is SEO friendly than another, it is individual's choice to decide which host you have deeper knowledge of and which one has the best support. The support I mean here also includes the one whose support tutorials and tools are more available on the internet either officially or unofficially.



Just below here, I will highlight 5 points that will help you decide which host is best for you and why you should consider the points useful. Remember, I will not be speaking for or against any blog host. This note is just based on my experience.


5 Basic Points to Consider Before Choosing your Blog Host


1. Your Purposes for Establishing the Blog: just as every other things exist for a purpose, you must have certain purposes for establishing your blog. Supposedly, you setup a blog for the purpose of promoting your own personal business say; sales of body creams. Obviously, you will really love to make it possible for people to make orders straight from the blog and that will involve making payments. Some blog hosts do not have plugins that supports that. Worst still, online payment processors such as PayPal will only have their plugins implemented on secure servers of which not all blog hosts hosts on secure servers especially, the free blogging platforms do not.

In this case, you will have to opt for a host that will satisfy your every need.


2. The Depth of your Knowledge: if you will be responsible for the management and administration of this blog, another factor you should consider is how much you know about the host. Can you really handle all the technical issues on the blog? Can you attend to server related issues from the back end? All these questions and the likes should pop up in your mind before you opt in for a host.

Although, initially, you may not have a use for the answers, but I'm sure you will definitely ask yourself later when the need for answers arrive.


3. Free or Paid Platform. Which one do you prefer?: if you have hosted your blog with blogger, you should know that everything about blogger is free unlike WordPress. Though WordPress has free version too but it's not without lots of limitations.

So, can you afford WordPress? Are you sure that your blog will start giving you returns (income) in a short while? If you're sure of the answers, you may proceed with your host choice without any possibilities of having issues.


4. Accessibility and Simplicity: either that you are on the go, at home or in your office, you should be able to access every aspects of your blog and make modifications as you wish. This is another factor you should consider. Most of the time, I manage some of my blogs on my 4.8inc android device. And that includes making posts, modifying the template, replying comments and more.

If you really mean business with your blog, you should be ready to make it part of your life. Let your blog go with you everywhere just like your diary.


5. Available Resources: though this the last point there is, it is as important as others in the list. The resources I mean here is not money. Rather, I mean the tools that are required. These tools include how-to tutorials, templates, plugins and other tools that will be required by you on that blog as time goes on since no one can do it all.


You should make sure that there are as much materials as may be required for that blog host available on the internet and that you can afford them at will.

For instance, do a Google search of anything on WordPress or Blogger and then, repeat that same search query for Typepad, you will understand my point.


While I have pinpoint the 5 Basics you should consider before choosing your blog host, there are other not mentioned in the list.
